Wrapping up the Semester

Stu writes: Mrs. Hirta, I just checked my grades in [the registrar's system] and noticed that my grade is the same as the preliminary grade I was given. I was wondering when my extra credit would be put in to the system and wanted to make sure I check with you before grades are made final.

Stu will be shocked to hear that after I evaluated the extra-credit submission that I didn't find it to be worth enough credit to improve the course grade. They had a month to work on this project, and based on the questions that Stu asked a few days before it was due, it is pretty clear that Stu did not put much time into this project. This was not some sort of pro forma fudge factor; this was an optional major project.

Welcome to college, Stu.
